Preparation Time : 20 mn – Baking Time : 35 mn
6-8 slices of bacon, diced
1 1/2 cup (40 cl) of whipping heavy cream
3/8 cup (10 cl) of milk
1/2 cup (100 g) of grated cheese
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of pepper
1/ Preheat oven to 400° F (200° C)
2/ Roll out pastry in a pie pan. Pastry should come about 1″ up the sides.
3/ Make some holes in the pastry by pushing it with a fork. Put the bacon dices on the pastry.
4/ Beat eggs, cream, milk, grated cheese and seasoning.
5/ Carefully pour mixture on the pastry, no more than 3/4 of the pie pan.
6/ Reduce heat to 300° F (150°C). Bake for 30 minutes or until pie is cooked. To know for sure when it’s cooked, insert a knife in the middle, if it comes clean your quiche is ready.
7/ Do not remove it from the pan. Serve with a salad.
You liked it? Now, you can basically change the bacon for anything you like. Try with salmon and spinach or tomatoes, onions and tuna fish (a canned one will be perfect). tomatoes also go perfectly with goat cheese (for the most adventurus ones) or mozarella. Just keep in mind most vegetables contain a lot of water that comes out when being cooked. If you don’t want your quiche to come out too liquid you shouldn’t put more than one « juicy » vegetable in it.
